M. Lomr. he. with hours Monday nigh!, Jum V:(i to 8:00 p. M. Everyone who ha; nut vol received the antitoxin I real meat for typhoid is urged to do so at once, not only for his own good but for the good of others. This treatment, is simple, painless, absolutely safe and statistics prove that, it, is almost a perfect, preventative of typhoid. Dr. T. W. M. Long: states that, last year he administered the antitoxin t real moid, to 721! people and not one of the per ons re reiving the treatment afterward developed typhoid. Estimating the population of Roanoke Rap ids to be 2500 people, t hat would leave about lSllll people unlront -ed. Of these people, tvvenlv t wo contracted t v plmid. So far this year no cases of typhoid have developed in t he , w hole community. This is won derful, considering the record of previous years and it can be ilue to nothing else but tic im proved sanitary coinlil ions of I he low ii and the fact Ilia! so man.v people have received the ,ml i loxin treatment. The antitoxin lasts two years, so if you received the treatment last year, you do not need it now. Typhoid fever is can e.l by a specific germ. That germ lives in water, milk ami organic mailer of all kinds. Il i con voyed by the ordinary hou.,e or stable lly also through the u al er and milk supply. These are practically the only three ways by which it can be contracted. The disease is easily prevented. It is, one of the few disease-; I h.il v e call prevent. II can be di.ne Is, the adoption of sanitary niea sure.',, cleaning up around v our premise:',, screening' our hou o ; ami outhouses, drinking vval.T thai comes only from deep well :, look after .your milk supply and he sure that il is sanitary. A., an additional precaution and to eiitireh- avoid all danger of con tracting; the disease, lake j he an titoxin treatment. As , laleil above tor the majority of the pi'.. pie in town it co 'ts. not Inn", and for the rest the treatment is inexpensive and easily taken. There were three cases of I v -phoid in the II. S. Army last e;ir OUt of HO, 000 110-11. pflll'ti cally all of whom had received this treatment. This i ; less than hull' of l-100th of one percent! New Business Enterprise The Roanoke Rapi.
